What is an Imprint?

An imprint, or "impressum," is a summary of the contact information and information related to copyrights of a business. It's the legally mandated statement for websites, books, newspapers, and other publications that explains ownership and authorship.

Germany is best known for requiring an "impressum" although Switzerland and Austria have similar laws.

The name "impressum" translates awkwardly to English as "imprint" or "impression."
